Beefless Stew

When I first became a vegetarian many years ago, one of the first recipes I adapted was my mother’s beef stew. Back then I used tempeh and browned it in oil. But once I discovered TVP chunks, I liked them even better. This stew is super low in fat and a complete meal in itself!

My favorite pasta recipe is a creamy basil sauce over any kind of pasta.

Wild Mushroom Risotto

Fresh and dried mushrooms combine for a woodsy mushroom-flavored risotto that needs no watching or constant stirring like traditional risottos. Instead, spend your time with your family, soaking in the tub, or reading a good book.

Thai Noodles

Hints: Rice vinegar and chili garlic sauce may be found in most supermarkets in the oriental section. One brand of chili-garlic sauce is made by Huy Fong Foods. It is quite spicy, so you may need to adjust the amount used according to your tastes. I use a small amount of sesame oil in this recipe for the unique taste it adds to foods. It may be omitted, if desired. This dish keeps well in the refrigerator and may also be served cold. This is great to fix on those busy evenings when everyone is eating at different times because it tastes best at room temperature.

Ginger Hoisin Rice Noodles with Veggies

Hints: Rice noodles are available in most markets and natural food stores. They usually take very little time to cook and most packages will have detailed directions on the labels.

    • Cranberry-Carrot Cake from Vegan Holiday Kitchen
      Six years ago, I was honored to work with Nava Atlas, taking the photos for her book Vegan Holiday Kitchen. It was a gorgeous hard-backed book, and I’m happy to announce it’s just come out in an equally beautiful paperback version, with full-color photographs on heavy, high-quality paper. To celebrate, I asked Nava if I... […]

    • Finding Heart
      More often than not, I am hard pressed to have my own imagination beat what happens in real life. This particular morning was an overcast drizzly one. The dogs and I hoofed it up a big hill and over to the community garden to dump kitchen compost and collect little leaves of kale and chard, […]
